Little Old Ladies and Rock Star Librarians: Genderizing the Librarian Stereotype - Presented by Ayanna Gaines
Register
This webinar is based off of the author’s chapter “That’s Women’s Work: Pink-Collar Professions, Gender, and the Librarian Stereotype,” published in the ACRL publication The Librarian Stereotype: Deconstructing Perceptions & Presentations of Information Work. She will discuss how the stereotyping of librarianship not only harms the profession with regards to status and pay equity, but is also detrimental to both genders.

About the Presenter:
  • Ayanna Gaines is Associate Librarian at Ventura College in Ventura, CA. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in English from Brown University in Providence, RI, and her Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science  from Dominican University in River Forest, IL. As much as she wants to tweak the librarian stereotype, she has two cats and several cardigans.
Audience: All Type of Libraries
